Mentoring for Board Chairs and Governance Professionals

Applications are now open for two mentoring opportunities – one aimed at Board Chairs and the other at Governance Professionals – being offered by the Education and Training Foundation. Both are available at no charge to participants.

Chairs’ Mentoring Programme

The Chairs’ Mentoring Programme is aimed at the Chairs of Boards of FE and Sixth Form Colleges. It offers participants up to four one-to-one, one-hour sessions of private mentoring support, focusing on skills, strategies, and challenges, until 15 March 2022.

The sessions will be conducted via Microsoft Teams. They will be with one of two experts: Andrew Baird and Sandra Prail.


Governance Professionals Coaching and Mentoring

Governance Professionals Executive Coaching and Mentoring is aimed at Clerks, Directors of Governance, and Governance Professionals of FE Boards. Like the Chairs’ Mentoring Programme, it offers participants up to four one-to-one, one-hour sessions of private mentoring support until 15 March 2022.

The sessions will be conducted via Microsoft Teams and help participants provide effective support to the Chair, anticipate and solve strategic problems, and become solutions driven. Mentoring is provided by highly experienced governance professionals at Beyond Governance and coaching is provided by executive coach Kay White.
